We enjoy riding on the old steam locomotive. It is like stepping back in time to watch the engine operate. We also enjoy watching the bear shows and strolling around the grounds.

We had been to some great country stores in VT, MA and NH. We were expecting to see some unique, funny, interesting and well-crafted merchandise. Instead we walked into a shop that was full of things no one should buy, nothing original and just generally creepy. The trained bear show was something that the humane society should put an end...

This awesome place owned and run by family which has existed for many years. Fantastic place for family with children of all ages. It goes without saying that the bears have a great time, the train ride is spiced up by the Wolfman and the entertainment for adults and children throughout the park is superb!

The bear show was quite entertaining, as was the train ride. I thought the train ride might be a little boring, but it was nothing like that at all..The wolfman made it so entertaining. I loved all the little shops and the museums

This place is sparkling clean and packed full of interesting sights. we are senior citizens, but tried the Segway training and had a ball! The owners were so friendly and courteous that we fell in love with the place. If you are within 50 miles, this place is a must-see.

This is a perfect half-day stop while in NH, we did it on our way home. There was 8 of us with 2 children, 3 &8, and we all enjoyed it. The admission is very reasonably priced and the food is also fairly priced and good. The Wolfman is a great character for the train ride making it more entertaining... More

The bear show is the best part. Train ride with the wolf-man. Other attractions including a museum. It will cost you a few bucks, but you don't do it every day.

This used to be just another gift shop, except with trained bears. It has grown to a great family attraction, with train rides, lots of fun things to do, a Segway park, water bumper boats, old-time photos....the list goes on and on! This is a must-stop-by place and take a day to enjoy. We visit here every time we're in... More

Arrived 9/28/14 during a foliage tour of New England. I had been to clarks two other times, 1981 and 1996. It was interesting to see the collections they displayed, the train ride with the wildman chasing the train (ROFLMAO) with the kids eyes WIDE OPEN. My wife and I were there for three well spent hours enjoying the offerings, along... More
